For Whom the Bell Tolls: Asset Allocation and Capital Markets Outlook for 2018

The divergence between equity prices and bond yields is ultimately unsustainable, with one of the asset classes destined to suffer. Myriad risks and investor complacency mysteriously co-exist, despite the shifting monetary landscape. Peter Perkins, global strategist at MRB Partners, will examine the outlook for capital markets over the next year and lay out recommended global asset allocation against a challenging backdrop. Located in London, Mr. Perkins will also provide perspective on the evolving political and economic landscape in Europe.

Peter Perkins is a founding partner. He has extensive experience, both as a strategist and economist. Mr. Perkins focuses on asset allocation issues and strategy, key drivers of the global economy and capital markets, as well as investment opportunities and risks. He works closely with MRB clients on tactical and strategic asset allocation, assisting them in interpreting and translating macroeconomic and policy factors into a tailored investment strategy. Mr. Perkins speaks widely at conferences, seminars and client meetings and regularly participates in investment committee meetings for select investment management firms.

Over his career, Mr. Perkins has covered all major asset classes and regions, and worked in the U.S., Hong Kong, Mexico, and Canada, before recently relocating to the U.K. Prior to forming MRB, he was Managing Editor at BCA Research Inc., focusing on tactical asset allocation and supporting major clients. Mr. Perkins has a Master of Economics from Pennsylvania State University and B.A in Economics from the University of Maryland.
